Nominate someone!!! Artists must live, work, or volunteer in Somerville, MA. Nominate someone whose work you admire!
Somerville is a land of talent. Since 2013, the Somerville Arts Council has been featuring a different creative Somervillian each month. Click here to see here our chosen artists over the years.
This series features a different creative Somervillian each month – painters, poets, song writers, you name it! The program is a way for us to celebrate the enormous wealth of talent in our city, by shining a spotlight on a different creative Somervillian on a regular basis. We’ll feature an interview with the Artist of the Month on our website, as well as images of their work.
This series is inspired by the Nave Gallery's "Featured Artist" program, which ran from 2005 to 2009.
